We have discussed numerous topics important for starting and running a business in this webinar program so far.From strategy, to sales. From funding, to networking. We would like to close this webinar program with an overview of 30 most common mistakes made by entrepreneurs.

 
There is no single road to Rome. Many different types of entrepreneurs discovered as many different ways to make their business successful. The question “what makes an entrepreneur successful” is a hard one to answer. We can look though at the most common missteps entrepreneurs tend to make along the way. This final webinar shares 30 mistakes, with anecdotes and examples. It'll be fun, and memorable and an important webinar not to miss.
 
Even with all the lessons we have shared so far, and all the to-do's we have provided, we are all only human and will make a mistake or 2 along the way. So if you do, at least make it an exceptional one and come and share your tale!
